  • Beautiful place to visit in monsoon. Great landmark with beautiful views. At the top there are clouds and mist during monsoon.

  • Vinchu kata machi is on the west side of lohgarh fort. Very good panoramic view we can see from here. At left side of vinchu kata machi we can see pawna dam backwater, we can also see tung fort just behind this dam. If we see at the south east we can see tikona fort from here. At the right side of this machi we can see ekveera devi temple and karla caves also. We can also see express way , railway route and old mumbai pune high way too.. Its very good place to visit. It gas good ancient construction too.which was constructed for the safty and security of this lohgarh fort. Just down of vinchukata machi deep woods spread around it. You need to climb down small scary patch to reach there. But now a days fencing is provided so no need to worry. It you are going to visit lohgarh then dont miss vinchu kata machi.
